SkillsGain focuses on providing the skills and knowledge we will need tomorrow by offering lectures and workshops today. Delivered by skilled facilitators and open to all residents of Stroud District.

Workshops usually last 2 hours and we usually ask for a contribution (£5 or 4 Stroud pounds) to cover venue hire. There may be additional costs for any materials used in workshops.Draught-busting

Through the SkillsGain taster programme it is hoped many people will go on to gain new skills. The skills we need are not just related to practical skills of growing or making things – but also the personal skills we need to maintain our own resilience. SkillsGain workshops will offer both. So come along to a SkillsGain Workshop – aimed at re-skilling the community for our changing world.
